Wilco Makes Plans For 2015

Wilco is extending its 20th anniversary celebration into the new year. The band’s first batch of 2015 headline dates is made up of gigs in Texas and Florida.

Last week Wilco wrapped its 2014 plans with a six-night residency in its hometown of Chicago at the Riviera Theatre. The band had promised to mix up the setlist each night and highlight songs from throughout its two decade-long career, which has seen Jeff Tweedy & Co. release eight studio albums.
